Please note that insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look
The start of Summer, with fields of rapeseed in full flower vying for attention with the frothy cow parsley and buttercups, overseen by the first swallows of the year. A print inspired by these views whilst driving across Norfolk. This is not a print made digitally and printed by machine; this 14 colour lino reduction print has all been hand made - drawn, lino carved and printed by hand, so there are minor variations making each and every print unique. One piece of lino was used, with colours added and more lino cut away each time. You can see some of the stages of printmaking, by clicking through the photographs. Once finished, it's impossible to print more as the lino is destroyed in the making of the print. Printed with water based light fast ink on 300 gsm Somerset satin acid free paper. Signed and numbered on the front in pencil. Room setting images are visually as close to scale as possible, but not to actual scale. An edition of only 35 prints. Image size is 40 x 30 cm on paper size 48 x 38 cm.
